Lewes is known as the “First Town in the First State,” where the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean meet. The townspeople of Lewes have done a superb job of preserving this historic, East Coast, seafaring town. The Zwaanendael MuseumShipcarpenter SquareLewes Historical Society Complex, and the preservation of Second Street allow the townspeople of Lewes to take a look at the days past. Lewes is a great family town that is extremely relaxed and low key. The City of Lewes is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and Lewes allows you to appreciate life in a seafaring town. Just park your car, you won’t need it here!
